Newton, MA (PRWEB) July 8, 2009
Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com), will hold its 2010 Lyra Imaging Symposium on January 25-27, 2010 at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage, California. The 13th annual Symposium's comprehensive lineup of presentations and panel discussions will explore the event's official theme, "The Road to Recovery."
Charles LeCompte, president and founder of Lyra Research, commented on the theme of the 13th annual Lyra Imaging Symposium. "The digital imaging industry is experiencing a period of transformation brought on by the many structural changes that are taking place, as well as the current recession. During this year's Symposium, we will take a closer look at the transformation that is occurring. We will also examine the road back to prosperity, what market opportunities exist, what segments are positioned for growth, and other trends that are permanently changing the way the industry does business."
Symposium Agenda Highlights: Beginning with an afternoon and evening of networking activities and events, followed by two full days of insightful presentations and panel discussions, the 13th annual Lyra Imaging Symposium offers invaluable industry analysis and an unmatched opportunity to meet and network with industry colleagues.
Symposium agenda highlights for 2010 include the following:
Vendor Scorecard Presentations: Based on their popularity and the dynamic landscape of the digital imaging market, Lyra has expanded its highly regarded vendor scorecard presentations for 2010. Led by Ann Priede, Lyra's vice president of publications, and Charles LeCompte, Lyra's president and founder, these two sessions are the ideal start to both conference days. These enlightening presentations will discuss which copier and printer companies are making the grade in terms of their products, marketing, and finances.
Managed Print Services (MPS) Focus: Influenced by the current economy and other factors, MPS has become an integral part of the digital imaging industry and it will continue to play a vital role in the industry's evolution over the next few years. The 2010 Symposium will take a closer look at the state of MPS market, its maturity, and its future.
Environmental Spotlight: As the green movement becomes increasingly important and the desire to pair environmental conservation with financial savings grows, the Symposium will extend its environmental coverage, delivering more reporting and analysis on the environmentally friendly initiatives that imaging vendors are implementing.
Commercial and Production Printing Breakout Session: Because interest in the commercial and industrial printing aspect of the digital imaging industry continues to grow, Lyra has added a breakout session focused on commercial and production printing to the Symposium's agenda. This exciting new session will feature lively discussions on the commercial print-for-pay market, industrial printing applications, and wide-format technology and trends.
This year's agenda also includes popular sessions such as the following:
Office Printing: This session will get things started on the first full day of the conference. It will feature timely discussions and analysis regarding the changing face of enterprise and small to medium-size business printing and copying, the complex office printer supplies market, and the latest software trends.
Global and Financial Spotlights: Unparalleled presentations describe business drivers, events, and trends in rapidly changing global markets, including insight into what is happening in developing countries. A Wall Street Watch panel, featuring financial analysts from the industry's top firms, will also debate issues regarding the digital imaging industry's business performance.
Consumer Imaging and Photo Printing: This segment of the Symposium agenda will feature the top imaging industry supplies trends from the past year, as discussed in The Hard Copy Supplies Journal. It will also investigate consumer photo printing preferences and other photo printing output trends.
